You can check out all the tournament locations and brackets at CCSAsoccer.org website or click here. Please remember that each district may charge a $1 parking fee, and teams are responsible for team treats after each game. Most locations charge $10 for team treats and if not paid are billed to BYSA (which will in turn be collected from your coach). BYSA's contract with the Legion does not allow us to charge for parking.
Please also consider volunteering to be a Field Marshall. Each team is required to provide a Field Marshall to keep track of the opposing team's player minutes. Volunteering for this position helps relieve the pressure on the multitude of task each coach takes on during the tournaments.
As always, keep your cool during the games. Cheer on the players and let the refs do their job. Any Yellow or Red cards handed out can be carried over into the Spring or Fall 2018.
Good Luck to all Bethel teams this weekend.
Field Lining, Concessions, Parking and Pictures
August 25, 2017
Field Lining Schedule is now posted for the 2017 Fall Soccer Season. Please try to line the fields on Thursday or Friday. Please contact Adam Jodrey if you are unable to line on a given week.
Concession Schedules will be posted shortly, Coaches McMullen, Earls, and Elliott will handle the first week. Each team will be assigned to work concessions 2-3 hours during the season. BYSA ask parents to please help your coach out and volunteer for these scheduled times. Your coach dedicates countless hours to coaching your kid, please help return the generosity. Michelle Randolph will try to assign your concession either right before or right after a home game. BYSA also offers a buyout option, contact Michelle a week in advance if interested.
Parking: Parking is always at a premium at the Legion Fields but please help out by following these suggestions. Do not park at the turnaround at the end of Legion Lane. This is for turnaround only! The American Legion paved lot should only be used for overflow parking. The gravel lot and Legion Lane should always be your first options. When parking on Legion Lane, please park at a diagonal. Parallel Parking takes up twice the space and limits access down the lane. Thank You!
Team Pictures: Don't forget to schedule your team pictures before the cold weather and early sunsets rolls in. The two week break coming up between weeks 2 and 3 is a perfect time to schedule your team shots. A list of photographers in the Bethel area can be found under the Photographers link.

Concussion Training Mandated by State Law for ALL COACHES AND REFEREES

It features interviews with leading experts, dynamic graphics and interactive exercises, and compelling storytelling to help you recognize a concussion and know how to respond if you think that your athlete might have a concussion. Once you complete the training and quiz, you must print out the certificate, and provide a copy to BYSA.
